Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Lusophonic Disappointment of Sciongrad is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.436 billion Scionites love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villa Real. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Scionite economy, worth 312 trillion Shields a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 48,487 Shields, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the Elk is a protected species, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sciongrad's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Clove.

Sciongrad is ranked 77th in International Democratic Union and 122,810th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -10 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
